I watched part of the game. I was really impressed with the amount of zone read plays Seattle ran. It's my impression that they gained a lot more using zone reads than conventional running plays. Who knows, maybe these NFL coaches are on to something.
But Wilson only kept the ball a couple of times while the DE's were aggressively crashing almost every play (as Collingsworth was pointing out) ... If he gave the ball to Lynch or the other backs almost every read how is that superior to a convention running play (other than you have an option that you didn't use)? Maybe I'm missing your point ...
Maybe it was the threat of him running it. All I observed is that they made more yards from option read plays than conventional running plays. Don't know the reason why unless the blocking changed from zone blocking to drive blocking on conventional I formation plays.
Maybe so ... it certainly looked like Wilson could have gained a lot of yards if he had kept it but he may have been instructed to limit his runs as it is only week 2. Regardless, the hawks run the zone read very well.
